What is Acupressure?

Acupressure is a non-invasive technique using gentle finger pressure on key points along energy meridians to release tension.  Using the Five element theory and the Chi cycle we can help balance energy and increase the body’s natural ability to heal itself.


How is acupressure different from acupuncture?

Acupressure uses the sensitivity of the hands to feel the energy changes and release of blockages in the meridians. It is non-invasive and energy sensitive.  No needles are used and there is no need to disrobe for treatments




North Vancouver Acupressure treating pets



What to expect during a session

Lie down, relax, get pampered

Treatments are done lying face up on the massage table wearing comfortable, loose fitting clothing.

Pillows and blankets provide a comfortable environment for you to relax in. Allow 1.5 hours for your treatment, and ideally schedule non-stressful activities after a session.

Relaxation and Pampering for your pets

  • Increase mobility for older pets
  • Reduce stress leading to behavioral issues in young dogs
  • Relaxation for dogs with separation anxiety


Help your pet find relief through relaxation therapy. Whether your pet is having difficulty with mobility due to aging, occasional acute pain issues or social and behavioral issues, a soothing relaxation treatment can help your pet feel better!

Familiar environments are most relaxing for pets. Pets can relax in their home on a comfortable bed or pillow.  Choose a time of day when your pet has had enough exercise to feel relaxed and schedule the treatment a few hours away from strenuous workouts or meal times. Allow 45 minutes for your pet’s session in a quiet, smoke free environment.
